Capt. Dodge's sale is the 31st. Dr. Barr was re-elected president of ;he school board at its meeting Monday. Mrs. J. E, Blackford has been quite 11 for a week past, but is slowly reeover- ng. All school children will be admitted to the Johnstone entertainment for 25 cents. Stough's essay on harness is bringing n the farmers from all parts of the county. Rev. Joseph DeForrest of Emmets- >urg will occupy the Episcopalian pul- >it next Sunday. About four inches of snow came Sunday. It will be a blessing to the farmers in their spring work. Mr. Dows. who is building the north nd railroad, was in Algona yesterday, and is up on the line today. The little eighteon-months child of C 1 . H, Wadsworth has been .very sick with pneumonia, and is still Very low. Elmer Wilbur was laid up a portion of last week, and the shop was_ short a land in consequence. He is better now. The Capt. Bailey household rejoices n the advent of a girl baby, which put n an appearance last Thursday. All are doing well. Jas. Taylor and W. F. Carter are run- ling a race in clearing out their stocks >efore moving. People buy of them at iheir own price. The Courier is making an effort to <eep up with the procession, and has changed its form to a quarto. Quality •emains the same. Masons are taking down the brick veneer from the Carter and Taylor store buildings, getting the frame 'eady for removal. That fine yard of Brown Leghorn owls of John Patterson's are the admiration of those who pass that way. They are worth walking several blocks to see. Thos. Hollis, one of the directors of 10 State Bank of Ledyard, was sand- >agged at his home at Radeliffe last week and nearly killed. His assailant "s not known. Chas. W.aldo has moved his house- lold goods into a portion of the old col- ege building, where he will soon be settled. He takes a position in E. J. ilmore's store. Hogs are down to $4 in Algona. In hicago yesterday they were not in big demand, and market closed lower. Oats, 22c; corn, 24c; and wheat, 75c, are the Algona prices. G. B. Woodworth says that 56 cars of emigrant's goods have been unloaded at Bancroft already this spring. This s a sample of what is going on in the way of new settlement. The new Boston store opens its career n Algona with a big advertisement this week. Mr. Wolpertis prepared to •eceive all callers, and it will pay them to see him before buying. Some well-known young people have .heir names enrolled on the marriage looks this week. J. F. Doderer and Vlinnie P. Breese, Hugh Herman and fettle Simpkins, Henry Eimers and Uatherina Drewes are the possessors of icenses. Rev. Flanigan closed four week's special meetings Sunday evening. . The attendance has been very large, and he work successful. He is an earnest and effective speaker, and is very popu- "arwith the church and the people generally. That fine display of carpets and cur- iains is now open at the Grange store and is worthy of a city. It will pay our •eaders to visit and see the variety af- 'orded and the cheap prices good goods can be had for, Geo. E. Clarke says that the new uilroad across the north end is sure to je built, and we learn that the company ,s already buying and paying for a great deal of the .right-of-way. It certainly ooks as though the line would go through as surveyed. G. M. Parsons informs us that the [rvington Cemetery association -will lold its annual meeting for the election of officers on the last Wednesday in March, the 30th, 1892, at Irvington, at 1 o'clock p. m. of said day. Letters are advertised for Miss Helen Nelson, F. M. Miller, Carl, A. Murrell, L<\ T. Hopkins, Heinrich Helmuke, Percie Holden, Chas. Brandt, Chas. Bash, G, G. Bobbins, J. T. Smith, Hannah Adolphson, Mrs. A. W. Clark, Mrs. Belle Torn, J. A. Gibson. R. J. Hunt now owns the D, D. Townsend residence property, for -which the latter gets a quarter section of good Kossuth county soil. Mr. Townsend has unbounded faith in the future of this section, and will hold his land to gee what comes of it. Still another new store building goes up at once. Geo. Galbraith will build east of Dr. Garfield's office a temporary building 60x22 feet to be occupied by W. F. Carter while his new room is being finished. The store room will be finished as soon as the weather will permit. Em.metsburg has made big preparations for the shooting tournament which begins today. Tomorrow Budd and Grimm have a contest for $100, and Friday Budd and Tom A. Marshall of Illinois shoot for $250. These and othei contests will make this one of the best meetings ever held in northern Iowa. Samuel Mayne of Bancroft was made first assistant secretary of the state convention last week, and was urged for reading clerk. Had not this place been given to Cliff as a sort of endorsement of hia fight in the senate, ova Kossuth delegate would have been chosen, and all who know his well* trained voice will appreciate that he would have filled it with credit to himself and the state. The special term of court was to be- jin next Monday, and no order has 3eeti received yet changing it, although Mr. Clarke's health is still such that it s unlikely that he can try his cases. Unless some order is received before Monday, however, the jury and court will be here to finish up the delayed Business. Bro. Platt of LuVerne has converted sis News into a quarto, and it looks letter in consequence. The quarto is ;he popular style now-a-days, and many papers throughout the state are discarding the cumbrous eight and nine- column pages for the more convenient and tasty-appearing ones. Those who are curious about alleged mind reading can see the best exponent ihere now is in Alexander Johnstone JYiday evening. He is the only rival ;o Bishop, whose death caused such a sensation a few years ago. Johnstone's performances are marvellous, and have jeen watched by the most careful observers. We advise all who want to see what can be done to be present, and ;o have some test that will put him on iis mettle. Mrs. Robt. Stephenson died at her lome in Algona last week Tuesday, and the funeral services occurred on Thursday. Deceased was 54 years old. She had been in poor health for a year or more, but her immediate death was caused by a severe attack of grip. She was a woman of many excellent quali- ;ies, and is mourned by a large circle of 'riends. She was a sister of N. C. and Joel Taylor. The Republican seems to be in fear hat the attorneys in the libel case will je in too poor health to do justice to it. We can comfort it by the assurance that Geo. E. Clarke and G. W. Argo can both be pretty well under the weather a,nd still make a pretty good show of a fight. Wo feel confident that ihe Republican will not be dissatisfied because of any lack of vigor on the part of the prosecution, and hope it will rest asy on that point. A strong effort is being made to organize what will bo known as the Farmers' Co-operative Company of Burt. Already many shares of stock are pledged, and there is reason to believe that the effort will be successful. The business will be that of buying rain and live stock and selling coal, and the place of business Burt. Stock certificates were printed at this office .ast week, and it is hoped the organi- sation may be able to commence operations by the first of May. Jas. A. Orr starts in for the spring and summer trade with an announcement this week in THE UPPER DES MOINES. This is eminently the proper thing for him to do, and it will be quite is proper for all who contemplate painting or papering to remember that he allows no man to discount him in the quality of his work. It may be of interest to know that he gets monthly styles from Philadelphia, and is prepared to assist any who may be desirous of knowing what is the latest in the way of decorative art. The deal for the Wallace & Reed creameries is completed, and the new co-operative company was organized yesterday. There are 60 shares of stock taken, and the officers are: F. L. Wilson, president; N. A. Pine, vice president; M. Schenck, secretary; C. C. St. Glair, treasurer. The directors are: F. L. Wilson, N. A. Pine, A. R. Bush, H. J. Gilbert, and M. Schenck. Peter Larson is chosen butter maker. The company starts off with good prospects for a big patronage. Frank Bros, last week effected a sale of their stock of clothing and business to H. Balcom of Sioux City, and possession was given Thursday. The new man is no stranger to the clothing business, having been similarly engaged at LeMars for some time. Algona welcomes him, and we predict for him a successful career. Frank Bros, began business in Algona seven years ago, and say they are well satisfied with the result of their efforts. J. C. Frank, who has had the management of the business here, says he is as yet undecided as to his future course, but has not given up the idea of an apartment store, providing he can get a building to suit. We hope he may find it convenient to stay with us. Notice has been served on the proprietors of the three barber shops in town that their keeping open on the Sabbath day is contrary to the statute " made and provided," and that unless their shops are hereafter closed on Sunday, legal proceedings will be commenced against them. Whether this movement is really in the interest of public morals, or whether It is prompted by some other motive, we are not apprised. Chris. Heise told the reporter he thought it was a " job" to force him to close against his wish. The city council was petitioned about a year ago for an ordinance to close the shops, but the council very properly said that if any of the shops wanted to close on'Sunday they could do so. The death of Mrs. Clarke occurred on Sunday at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Leonard Hohn, in Algona. She was past 85 years of age. She came to Algona last summer from Wisconsin to to make her home here and spend her remaining days among her relatives. She has been very feeble for some months, and it has not been thought she could long survive. Finally on Sunday the grim messenger stepped in to relieve her of earthly cares. The funeral took place yesterday, and tho remains were taken to Monroe, Wis., for burial. She leaves two daughters in Algona, Mrs. L. Hohn and Mrs. H. J. Resseguie; a daughter in Monroe, Wis., Mrs. Phillips; and a son at Monticcllo, Wis., W. H. Clark. Over in the Wesley school district they are having more or less difficulty over the adoption of a resolution at the annual school meeting which says algebra shall be one of the branches taught in that district. The trouble isn't so much that the people want algebra taught as that there isn't a teacher in the township who is qualified to teach it. The result is that they must send out of the township for their teachers for a year, at least, and as much longer as the present state of affairs exists. Several Wesley township people have been to see Supt. Reed about it, but he tells them the people are supreme, and what they said at the annual meeting holds good for a year anyway. Then, if they don't like it, they can make other arrangements. Coming home from Des Moines we enjoyed a few hours at Nevada in Story county and went through the fine egg storage house of the Board man brothers. It is a two story double front brick block 90 feet deep, and wholly devoted to eggs. They have ice rooms for how many car loads we do not recall, and 25 pickling vats, ten feet square and seven deep, holding two car loads each. Their total storage capacity is 700,000 dozen, and in the summer they 'gather and put away this enormous quantity, shipping them to market in the winter. They own several creameries in various other places besides Algona and Whittemore, but the egg business is what they attend to themselves in Nevada. They are both rustlers in business and one of them is delegate from the Seventh to the Minneapolis convention. THE UPPER DES MOINES is in receipt of an odd-looking article which, in in its native country, would be known as a sandal. It is merely a piece of raw hide, cut to fit the bottom of the foot, and is such as is worn by Mexicans. It comes from Geo. Bovee, whose residence is at El Paso, Texas, and who has relatives in Algona. Mr. Bovee, in a letter, says concerning the sandal: " I intend to send THE UPPER DES MOINES a sandal, such as is worn by many Mexicans to this day. It is no protection except to the sole of the foot. Cowboys say that they have often come across dead cattle with nothing taken from them except two sandals cut from the hide, the animals having been killed for this only." Mr. Bovee is a brother of Mrs. J. J. Wilson and Mrs. R. B. Warren, and talks of making a visit to Algona the coming summer. Most people who know how comfortably Capt. Dodge was situated on his farm, two miles south of the Irvinerton station, may be surprised to learn that he last week sold the quarter on which the buildings are located, to a Mr. Campbell of McHenry county, Illinois. The price paid was $30 an acre. Questioned concerning the sale, Mr. Dodge said that failing health on the part of both his wife and himself had impelled him to dispose of the farm. He fells, moreover, that he has done fully his share of hard work, and now that he is passing along toward the shady side of life he proposes to take it a little easier, He will probably move to Algona after a while. He has more land adjoining the old place, which, however, is rented out and furnishes him sufficient income. He came here 17 years ago from Minneapolis, and has been actively engaged in farming ever since. At Public Sale.

No healthy person need fear any dangerous consequences from an attack of the grip if properly treated. It is much the same as a severe cold and requires precisely the same teeatment.- Remain quietly at home and take Chamberlain's Cough Remedy as directed for a severe cold, and a prompt and complete recovery is sure to follow.
